Step 1: Create your ALEKS PPL account and complete the initial knowledge check (unproctored).

If you need accessibility or testing accommodations, do not set up an ALEKS PPL account yet. Go to Accessibility Resource Center. Arrangements must be made at least two weeks in advance of taking the ALEKS PPL Assessment.

Step 2: Complete at least three hours in the prep and learning modules, an individualized, self-paced online review. While everyone is different, it is common for students to spend much more time studying in ALEKS PPL. The more time you are able to dedicate to ALEKS PPL now, the more it ay help save time and money later!

Step 3: Once you have completed the learning modules and feel that you are ready, complete a proctored ALEKS PPL assessment with our online proctoring service, ProctorU.


Tips For Success
  • Review Get to Know ALEKS PPL before you begin.
  • Aim to complete all three steps of ALEKS PPL by June 10 if you are attending an early Orientation session.
  • Give yourself at least three business days before your orientation session to complete the proctored ALEKS PPL assessment for your score to be available.
  • If you are not happy with your proctored results, try reviewing the modules and re-assess. After assessing a second time, review your score and proceed with the recommendation.
